Colorbar Take me as I am Lip Color Bare Dare Pink - Review , Swatch & Photos

Take me as I am lip color is a unique multifunctional product which provides the application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. It is an extra creamy and soft feeling lipstick formula with excellent color pay-off and coverage. Viscous oils and esters create the beautiful shine. Skin conditioning ingredients like Shea butter and vitamin E further enhance the comfortable wearing properties. Be worry-free, take this gorgeous pencil and create the prettiest lip – creamy, ready for shine and flirty fun.

Shade : Colorbar bare dare pink lipcolor is a soft pinkish n*de shade.

Ever since i sawthese on Indian blogs, i knew i wanted at least one of these chubby cutie pielip color pencils. I swatched few in the shop and decided that i have alreadyso many bright shades , now it’s time to get a shade which is a"safe" options and easy to re touch when in hurry. So i bought BareDare Pink, which is a soft pinkish nude shade. These pencils are sort of sisterto Revlon kissable bitten lip balms, but unlike Revlon ones you need to sharpenthem. Luckily i got a free sharpener with the purchase. Texture wise , these are super creamy and smooth. It applies like a dream and no tugging or pulling. On the lips they sit comfortably , no drying out . Although if you have flaky dry lips, i will suggest exfoliating before applying otherwise it does have tendency to settle into fine lines . The shade i have is really nicely pigmented. I didnt have to swipe it over and over to get the color on my pigmented lips. So if someone has pigmented lips, these will work well . The finish is between creamy glossy. In the swatch below you will see that they are almost like Revlon ones .  The staying power is around 3-4 hours on me.

Over all i like the over product,I wish the staying power was little better . They cost around rs 1500 and you can order these from Indian Brands in Pakistan

Essence Stay All Day 16H Long Lasting Makeup Review
So i bought this only because i needed a long lasting foundation which will last quite few hours in India while we travel,shop,dine out and etc. I love my revlon colorstay but i find it little too much heavy for the day time use and it doesnt have a pump. So i bought this from Alfatah DHA lahore. 
This long-lasting make-up ensures a smooth and silky complexion all day long. The delicate texture allows a simple and even application.The foundation comes with a pump dispenser for perfect dosage so you can create an indescribably beautiful look. 
Shade - Soft Honey

Essence Stay All Day 16H Long Lasting Makeup 

I really love the packaging , esp the pump it comes with. The pump right amount of product because the pump has an easy control therefore flow.The shade i bought was 40 soft honey , which suits my NC35 Skintone perfectly.The shade suits my skintone amazingly . Essence Stay All Day Foundation lasts for hours on me without smudging , oxidizing or running on me , I used to apply this almost 10 am and took my makeup off around midnight. Although it claims to last 16 hours but on me It pretty much stayed more than 8 hours, It never gave me a any trouble like break outs,never clogged my pores .It doesnt feel heavy on the skin and it so light weight that you dont feel like you are wearing foundation . I never used any primer although i brought benefit Porefessional with me , but i never needed to use it. The texture is a semi cream to liquid.The foundation applies smoothly , i used my fingers but mostly brush like sigma F80 works wonderfully too and that what i used most of the time. It creates a flawless base for blush or bronzer. Essence Stay All Day Foundation has a medium-full coverage foundation with a build able formula. It has semi matte finish. My skin did get little oily at the end of the day but it didn't look bad infact it looked more glowy .
